GeenEenTwee

Build Status

The GeenEenTwee is one of my 'machines' that prevents a mobile phone from turning on.

I noticed that my phone turns on and calls the emergency number when I put it turned off in my pocket. Removing the battery is not an option: I don't want to lose it or damage it.

The name 'GeenEenTwee' is a pun on the Dutch emergency number 112, which is spelled out as 'Een een twee'. An equivalent English name would be 'NighOneOne'.

Creating a GeenEenTwee

  • Cut out a piece of sturdy paper in a rectangle sized 3 cm x 5 cm
  • Add addhesive tape at one of the smaller edges
